350z with problem starting - PROBLEM NOW SOLVED!

After a trial an error process the dealership finally found out what the problem was. The NATS antenna went out. When it went out it somehow fried my BCM (Body Control Module). The car threw a code the first time I took the car to the dealer and their trouble shoot was to replace the keys and reprogram everything. So we did that. It didn't fix anything. I tried a new battery (the original battery was on its way out. Only putting out 265 cranking amps rather than the 500+ that it should have been). After that the problem was still there so I took it back to the dealer. This time they changed the BCM and told me that was the cause. It was a factor but not the cause. The third time I bring the car in it throws a code for the NATS antenna. After that was swapped out everything works great. I've gone about 1,000 miles on the new NATS antenna without a problem. The car starts every time. Hopefully this helps the rest of you.

How to the replace camshaft sensor on Infiniti M35 G35 FX35 NIssan 350z Altima 3 5 pt 1 so the infamous Check Engine Soon, VDC OFF and SLIP lights are on. I was driving and the car shut down; before that happened, i feel a little surge, hesitation from the car and then about 100 yards or so, the car shut down. WHen i turn the car on again, it hesitated and seemed a little hard/over cranking trying to turn itself on. How to the replace camshaft sensor on Infiniti M35 G35 FX35 NIssan 350z Altima 3 5 pt 1 so after searching the forum, i found several folks mentioned the code and the symptom.

It was the crank sensor that seemed to be of issue. I first replaced the 2 cams (90 per sensor) and still had the problem. It was after replacing the two crank sensors (30 per sensor) that my car went back to normal. My mechanic said the cranks are easy to get to, but easy to miss. Change the cheaper ones first though!! How to the replace camshaft sensor on Infiniti M35 G35 FX35 NIssan 350z Altima 3 5 pt 1 Please keep in mind I have a 2004 M45. Good luck!!!

Top Re: P0340 - Camshaft position sensor bank 1 - DIY Postby cruzad3r » Sat Dec 24, 2011 11:22 am Problem is fixed. i did not buy OEM nissan part because it's Xmas and i need the car. so i opt for Autozone Duralast Made in USA with 2 years warranty. this cost about 60 bucks. you want to make sure you get the straight sensor, not the angle one. My wonderful autozone rep gave me the wrong one which cost me another trip back for the right sensor. anyway, here you go. thanks to the internet, i found tons of information on this issue. apparently Nissan/Infiniti are notorious for this issue. OEM part at my nissan dealer cost round 89 bucks while at infiniti dealer cost 90$. these are not my pictures because i didn't have time to take any. It's cold and i just want to be done with it. however this author took several pictures that are very good. nissan sensor part Zoom in (real dimensions: 800 x 600)Image passenger sensor plug - it's at the back of the engine by the battery. you can't miss it. it's bright green
